Exome Sequencing Study Identifies Chromatin Remodeling-related Mutations in Schizophrenia | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – De novo mutations linked to schizophrenia are over-represented in chromatin remodeling genes, researchers from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and Trinity College Dublin reported in Molecular Psychiatry today.

Additionally, the researchers found that a number of those genes overlap with genes previously associated with autism and intellectual disability, possibly, the researchers said, indicating a common genetic etiology among the disorders.
